Black Cat Appreciation Day

August 17 is evidently Black Cat Appreciation Day, so we bring you this photo of a member of the 13 Flying Black Cats – an early aerial stunt team – from the archives of the San Diego Air & Space Museum.

The Flickr caption on this photos says: 1st Lieut. Frank B. Estell stands by his “Texas Longhorn” Jenny at the North Memphis Driving Park, Memphis, Tennessee, on April 12, 1919.
